Sunny SF-T7603 Treadmill Review - $349.00

  • How Long Will The Sunny SF-T7603 Last?

    When it comes to treadmills in this price range, it is good to think of their longevity like shoes. As other treadmills in the market compared to a basic treadmill, one should imagine a new pair of New Balance or Asics shoes compared to the flip-flops they hand out at the nail salon. Even if you're not man enough to admit the number of pedicures you have received, we have all see those Styrofoam neon sandals that are so thin they can barely hold up to the walk from the massage chair to the cash register. Similarly, the SSF-T7603 is a very basic machine that is better suited for light exercise and not even necessarily on a daily basis.
  • Brief Overview

    Does anyone remember the Jitter Bug commercials with the elderly folks who sang about a phone that looked similar to the LeapFrog phones from childhood? These phones are very pitiful when compared to the new iPhone or Samsung, but for little grandmas who really only want to make phone calls, they are perfect. The SSF-T7603 is one of the basic treadmills that serves a very similar purpose. The reason that the price is so low is that it is one of the most basic machines that there is and is meant for those who enjoy light use. With that said, the SSF-T7603 has won our Runner-Up Award for the 2019 Best Buys in the $399 and Under category.
  • Overall Quality

    We have awarded the SSF-T7603 the Runner-Up Award because of the minimal function that is nice to see in this basic price range. The warranty is probably the feature that stands out the most against machines with the same price tag. A 180-day parts and labor warranty is more than even our Best Buy winner. While this does not mean that the SSF-7603 is a superior machine, it does indicate to us that Sunny has shown they will stand behind even their most basic machines by providing an extra level of value.

    Outside of the warranty, the SSF-T7603 also comes with heart-rate grips. Most treadmills in this price range only come with thumb monitors. A very minor quality, but the little things do add up and it is nice to see Sunny adding more features where they can.

    Still, the SSF-T7603 is still one the most basic treadmills that are out there. Sunny has equipped this treadmill with nine built-in workouts, a 9mph speed ability, 3.8 percent incline capability, and a sixteen-inch walking area- pretty standard for the basic treadmills. Features like these give us the ability to categorize the SSF-T7603 as a walkers-only kind of treadmill.

  • History

    Over the years, we have noted that while the SSF-T7603 is a step up from some of Sunny’s bottom level models, one must be aware that the price range simply does not warrant much quality. We have found the SSF-T7603 to still be a basic machine and really best suited for light users who enjoy casual walking.
  • Conclusion

    The SSF-T7603 does certainly have some shining features that help it to stand out in the $399 and under price range. Our 2019 Best Buy Runner-Up has an above average warranty that shows the added value and support from Sunny as well as a few features that help show Sunny’s attempt to add value when possible. With that said, one should keep in mind that treadmills in this price range are not likely to last long and certainly not suited for users who intend to do serious, daily workouts. But, if you are a light, casual walker looking for a starter treadmill, then the Sunny SSF-T7603 is an okay buy.
